Part-Time Evening J.D.

A Flexible Evening J.D. Program to Meet Your Needs

If you are a working professional seeking a highly selective, competitive legal education, Chicago-Kent's Part-Time Evening J.D. Program is for you. In recent years entering class sizes have ranged from about 20 to 35 students, providing for a low student/faculty ratio and close interaction with faculty members. 

As a first-year evening student at Chicago-Kent, you may follow a traditional evening schedule with classes held Monday through Thursday evening, or choose a flexible schedule that begins earlier in the summer and reduces your course load during the fall semester.

After completing your first year of required doctrinal classes, there is substantial flexibility to tailor your schedule to your personal circumstances. If your work schedule permits, you may take up to half of your courses during the day. Although not all elective courses are offered in the evening division, we ensure that recommended courses, and a wide variety of other electives, are offered in the evening. Some courses are scheduled at 4 p.m. and attract a mixed enrollment of both full-time and part-time students. Full-time faculty regularly teach in the evening division, including all required doctrinal courses.

If you have any questions about the evening J.D. Program at Chicago-Kent or would like to speak with students who are currently enrolled in the program, please contact the Office of Admissions at or 312.906.5020.
